Big Soundstage: K550

 

Comfort: K550

 

Durability: K550

 

I can't vouch for the others. But the K550s are the best cans I've ever owned and seem to meet all of your needs with room.

Hi guys,

I narrowed it down to these three headphones:

1) V-Moda M100 ($300) extremely durable, bassy, cosed and looks good.

2) Ultrasone PRO900 ($500) bassy, closed and looks very good (Not sure about durability)

3) AKG K267 TIËSTO ($350) durable, bassy, closed, looks good.

So can you guys help me narrow it down even further? Should I remove Ultrasone from the list or is it worth the extra money?

Hey guys, I'm new here and I missed this thread and mistakenly started a new one.

I still got some good answers though, but I wanted to move my questions here:

It looks like the recommendations given were the hifiman HE-400s with the magni/modi stack. If anyone has listened to the He-400s on that amp/dac combo or had any opinions to offer, I'd greatly appreciate it!



If you'd like to read my original post, here it is:

Actually, I decided to remove the Ultrasone PRO900 from my list, even if it is better I don't want to spent more than $350.

So now please help me decide between the V-Moda M100 ($300)  and the AKG K267 TIËSTO ($350). Really difficult decision :$

Of course you can use regular headphones for gaming and there are tons of great options out there for the money. The 598 will give you great spacial accuracy and posioning plus will be great for music. A little bass light though. You could always go with the PC360 gaming headsets that are very good or if you want a better gaming headset that's also a way better music and movie headphone the MMX 300 from Beyerdynamic.

Where are you located? The Pro 900 is no where near $500 in the US. You can get them on EBay and Amazon for less than 300 and yes they are super durable and will out preform the other two on your list

I live in Sydney Australia and the cheapest I can find it anywhere is $550 + shipping :( http://www.ebay.com/itm/UltraSone-Pro900-Premium-Audiophile-Stereo-Headphones-New-/230901312886?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item35c2ca6d76 this is the cheapest.

I really like the other two, exactly what I want in terms of sound and build quality. I am leaning more towards the V-Moda M100 so what do you guys think?

What I have now

PC + Audio-gd Compass + DT770 Pro (80)

 

What I will use them for

PC Gaming

Indie Pop/Rock, Electro, Classic Rock, Blues, Hip hop, Jazz, Classical (I listen to almost everything.  I listed genres in rough order of relative time spent listening.)

I like bass, but if I had to choose I would pick tighter bass over powerful bass.

 

What I'm considering

Sennheiser HD650

HiFiMAN HE-500

????

 

I've been considering upgrading to HD650s for the last year or so, amidst frustration that the price on them has shot up around $100 over this time.  Considering this, the fact that I have a better job now, and that I haven't actually put in any real research time into cans in two or three years, I decided to open up and look around more for something better.  So, I have now discovered the HE-500s, which while $300 more than what I had originally intended to spend (200 now), have me extremely intrigued and tempted to just go balls to the wall.  My spidey sense tells me there is some degree of FOTM effect going on with the HE-500s, but they seem to offer a lot for that extra $200 spent.  Meanwhile, at $500 for 650s I'm left wondering if I'm better off spending less for something like MDR-1Rs or countless other awesome headphones in the $300-400 range.  Finally, If this Compass DAC/Amp isn't the ideal setup for the upgrades I'm looking to move toward, I am open to upgrading that equipment in the near future, maybe a year out.

 

So given all my variables, what is my best choice for cans?

 

My advice will be of little value since I haven't heard MDR-1 and the 650 only briefly (which was very nice) so I won't address them.  But I can vouch for the HE-500.  I had them in the loaner program and spent many hours comparing them to RS-1, Edition 8, D7000 and HD600 and it wasn't even close.  The HE-500 were worlds better in refinement and enjoyment and made the others sound rough and tonally unbalanced, even though they are all fairly close in price.  I now own LCD-2 which I prefer by a hair (the bass is sublime, but merely great in the HE-500) but the HE-500 are immediately enjoyable, whereas the LCD-2 took me a few weeks to appreciate and enjoy.

Senns all the way.  If you want added bass, pick up an inexpensive fiio amp with a bass eq.  In a few years after listening a wide variety of music I bet that you will start to prefer a more neutral signature, and you will have an extremely high quality and versatile set of headphones ready for enjoying.

For Dubstep / Drum N' Bass, are the Mad Dogs/ V Moda 100's any good?

 

I need closed headphones, I'm pairing them with a Digizoid ZO2. Will this device give just about any headphone a sufficient boost in the bass department?

 

My budget for headphones is 350$.

Hi,

I'm in the market for a new pair of headphones, since my current ones don't appear to produce certain frequencies in the right headphone. Unbelievably annoying, actually

Some info:

Current Headphones: Superlux HD668B

Used For: Hip-Hop, Metal, Classical, Gaming and Movies

Budget: $150

 

Considering the Grado 60i, but I really have no idea.

 

Thanks in advance!

What sound signature do you prefer?

 

What equipment will be powering these can?  Will you use an amp?

 

Since you are considering the Grado, I assume that open cans that leak sound are OK.
